    NGC Grading Submissions Open

    I have to say I'm very excited (And hoping these are my coins too lol). Thanks again Numi.

    I'll take a PF71 Rare Date Quintuple Sovereign, please.
  3. Sorry I'm just getting back to you now @mondy41 If you do get the urge to swap/sell them, I'd be very interested.

    Pity. It's a mess up like that that has long lasting effects, especially for those who are buying it on the basis that it's a proof. I wouldn't be able to tell the difference without you pointing that out. It is a masterpiece, though.

    Wow, would this be a problem for NGC to resolve if @PansPurse overpaid for the BU?

    For those of you who are impatient, and those of you that have submitted a coin for grading: There is a way to give a good indication of your coin's grade. Here's how I do it, anyways. So, say you've submitted a coin that isn't overly popular *right now* Just keep an eye on the census - when the number changes in the census, it's highly likely that that is your coin. Have fun
  7. I've got quite a collection of Irish banknotes I'm trying to build. If anyone has any that they're looking to get rid of (or would swap for some silver), let me know!

    I really think NGC have to get a rectangular insert to hold those. I started a topic on this recently.

    @Numistacker Hi Numi! I have 'quite' the submission coming over next week! I am really hoping for some 69's and a non-details grade (a 70 would make my year) Keep your eyes peeled Thanks!!

    **April 2018** Group order from European Mint

    OK who ordered the dragons? The next problem I foresee is that people will order 2 months of Silver in June's group buy, thus having poor BYB having to deal with TWICE the last orders amount of silver. This could, in time, become an exponential problem...

    What’s everyone’s view on the Star Wars coins then ?

    The square coins are doing very well, in particular the 2017 Niue 40th anniversary. I had to pay €188 for one recently. And that was the cheapest around. I know it'll cover the cost of the other coins the series, but damn, it shot up in price overnight.

    **April 2018** Group order from European Mint

    Big Whopper of a month on this order. I really don't know how I'm going to explain the bank account on this one. Perhaps BYB can offer us an 'invoice' 'service' that vastly reduces the amount we paid?

    Royal Mint didn't waste any time with the new Royal Baby!!!

    Translation for the non-Irish speakers: Kiss my arse.
  15. Hi guys! You may have noticed that slabs for rectangular coins come back in slabs with a circular insert for mounting the coin. To me, this is unsightly. Would it not make more sense to fabricate an insert that conforms to the "usual" rectangle size of the coins? Yes, i know it's aesthetics, but the slab could look better. I don't recall seeing one on @Numistacker's grading videos.
